    This guy that bought my downpipe yesterday had the same thing with his '06 WRX wagon. It turned out to be a seal leaking from the strut. Take the wheel off and see if you can get a better look at the source of the leak.

    Still, would not hurt to take the wheel off to see the source of the leak. It could be a damaged brake line from the strut install, or the new strut could be defective. You'll never know unless you take a look. And, if either one of those are the case, it's no-cost to you. (tow it if it is the brake line)

    The strut could have been defective from manufacturing and nothing that you caused. They are what the industry calls "test escapees". It's not something that happens all the time (depending on the quality standards), but it does happen and is why parts are warrantied against defects.
